Bike the Golden Gate Bridge

Before stopping for any snacks we formed a pyramid that framed the background GG bridge.
The first challenge: my scheduled first stop was the Crissey Field Cafe for a strong coffee and croissant or pastry just before we would tackle the GG bridge…it was closed for renovations for a month–a communal groan  from the hungry masses, but they hung on as I promised better stuff on the other side of the bridge–but the day got more interesting on the Marin side.

Laura got a flat on the Golden Gate Bridge and didn’t realize it until she got over the bridge. So while the others kept riding on to Sausalito, I stayed with her at the Cavallo Point Inn where we had a good (
and expensive) lunch waiting for another bike to ride, sent from the bike company.

They ended up taking her and her friend on a tour of SF in a convertible car (“It worked out so well!”).

Well, for the rest of the students, they got to hang out in sunny Sausalito and check out the Taj Mahal (I met up with them by then ) houseboat before finally getting on the Ferry boat back to the Ferry building as sunset glowed over the city.

Any regrets?
